When Mike's Carwash first opened in 1948, it was one of only 18 carwash businesses in the United States. Today, the family-owned establishment keeps the 65-year-old tradition of gussying up automobiles alive at 42 locations throughout the Midwest. At each location, accommodating staffers stand by to assist customers during the cleaning process. Decked out in cartoon neckties, the cheerful team ushers cars into computer-controlled washers that eschew traditional gear-operated brushes and baseball bats in favor of controlled sprays and soft cloths. After the mixture of eight signature soaps de-grimes surfaces, 200-miles-per-hour gusts of hot air dry vehicles instantly. Mike's also offers specialty coats to give car exteriors and tires additional shine.

The Schatzley family has been designing, repairing, and appraising jewelry for more than three decades. Jack Schatzley's IRS- and court-approved appraising skills (typically $65 for the first item and $35 for each additional item) make the studio a sparkling choice for treasure-exams. Renee Schatzley's custom-jewelry talents—mined by bauble-fans who wish to give one-of-a-kind engagement rings or design their own pendants—give her a shimmering backbone of design skills. Services include fixing broken chains, resetting diamonds, resizing finger trinkets, and reconstructing rings that have been mangled during games of monster-truck pattycake. Schatzley's recutting service wicks chips and scratches off of gems, using the offending flaws and excess gem powder as glitter in high-quality children's craft projects.
